How do I wash my earthing sheet underlay?
Washing instructions depend upon which Better Earthing product you own.
Better Earthing Sheet Underlays.
Machine wash with any clothes detergent* in warm to hot water(30-60°C) to help remove body oils. We suggest presoaking beforehand in an Oxidiser soaker. This helps prevent the build-up of body oils, which act as a barrier to good conductivity and can reduce earthing strength until washed out. Oxidising soakers will not damage this fabric as our Stainless Steel fibre will not oxidise.
Wash every 3-6 months.
Line dry in the sun or shade. Final drying in a tumble-dryer on low is okay. Do not dry clean.
*Avoid using bleach with our Antibacterial Tencel earthing fabric, as this will degrade the antibacterial life over time. As this fabric is highly antibacterial, you can place it on the bed when it is not yet 100% dry (it will not develop mildew or other odours).
Premium Earthing Underlays(2020-2022).
For Premium Earthing Underlay made using a stainless steel filament, please set your washing to machine on ‘hand-wash’ or ‘wool-wash’ setting with low spin cycle.
Use either warm water (30-40c) or cold water with presoaking beforehand in an Oxy soaker (see washing frequency for more). Wash with a detergent that does not contain bleach as this will degrade its antibacterial effectiveness over time. Choose an eco-friendly detergent like Earth Choice, Aware or Abode as they typically do not include bleach.
Wash every 3-6 months. This fabric is naturally antibacterial and remains hygienic between washes. Presoak every 2nd wash in an oxidiser soaker to prevent the build-up of body oils as they act as a barrier to good conductivity and can reduce earthing strength until washed out. Oxidising soakers are fine to use as our Stainless Steel filament does not oxidise.
Line dry inside or outside. Do not tumble-dry. Do not dry clean. This fabric has a natural crinkle and will pucker after washing. Hand-stretch the wet fabric by stretching the sides in opposite directions (stretching the sides apart). As this fabric is highly antibacterial, you can place it on the bed when it is not yet 100% dry (it will not develop mildew or other odours).
